High School Advanced Learning Open Night

Wednesday, 22nd October

An evening to showcase the exciting opportunities that have been occurring this year for advanced learners at WCCS and to see what is in store for 2015.

You are invited to attend the High School Advanced Learning Open Night on Wednesday, 22nd of October. This is an opportunity for you to hear about how the Advanced Learning Program operates in the High School and the types of challenges that the students undertake.  In 2014, students have participated in Advanced Learning Projects, Tournament of the Minds, Inter-school Competitions, Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians and the WCCS Drama, Nerd and Philosophy Clubs.

The Open Night will be a particularly informative event for parents and carers of High School advanced learners and/or students in Years 5 and 6. Of course, any parent or carer who would like to hear about the Advanced Learning Program is encouraged to attend.

This event also provides our current advanced learners, who have been completing individual projects, with an opportunity to present their work to an audience.

When: 22/10/14 from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm. Tea and coffee will be available from 6:15 pm, so feel free to come early for an informal chat.

Where: School hall.

 


   

The Carey Canteen

Tuesday, 8th October, 2014

William Carey's new canteen opened this week and the staff and volunteers have most certainly hit the ground running. Students and staff alike have flocked to the canteen to check out the new products that are available and, we are pleased to report, they have been quite happy with what is to be found there. From slinky apples to chicken burgers and gelato to Juice Bombs - there's definitely something for everyone.

As always, students may place lunch orders, which must be handed in before recess. Students and staff are strongly encouraged to order wraps, salads, sandwiches and hot food, as there will be limited stock of these items available at lunchtime to those who have not ordered. 

WCCS endeavours to minimise the additives and preservatives used in many of the products that are available at the canteen and the serving sizes reflect the recommendations for healthy eating portions. The canteen has many gluten free options, so don't let your dietary needs stop you from making use of this wonderful facility! If your child has a dietary related need that you would like to discuss with the canteen managers, please contact them via canteen@wccs.nsw.edu.au or 96082277.

Our canteen is operational because of the volunteers who give up their time in order to provide a service to the school community. If you are interested in joining the team, please contact the canteen managers via canteen@wccs.nsw.edu.au or 96082277.

Thank you to everyone who has supported this new development in the Carey community. We look forward to seeing you at the canteen soon!

Each year, students in the Advanced Learning Centre (ALC) spend a term stepping through a detailed Science experiment of their own choosing. All of the students' findings are then presented to parents and teachers at the ALC Science Fair. Congratulations to all of the students who enthusiastically participated in this educational event during 2014.
